An 11-year-old schoolgirl from Huyton faced the most unscrupulous situation at her educational institution when she was taken out of class because of her tiny earrings. She was even made to stand with her face to the wall as punishment. 

School policies can sometimes be absolutely absurd, forcing the students to adhere to them at all costs. Something similar unfolded for India Lloyd, a student at the Prescot School in England, who was reprimanded because she wore "barely noticeable" earrings. 

India's tiny earrings contained diamonds extracted from her great-grandmother's engagement ring. She's worn the earrings ever since she was two and never faced any trouble at school because of them.

Her mother, Geraldine Lloyd, who is a healthcare worker, shared that her daughter completed her primary school while wearing the earrings and was never asked to take them off, even when she started high school at the age of 7. She also added:

"I was so angry because they pulled her out of art and she loves art."

India lost her father to suicide three years ago and has had a hard time coping with the loss. Her 43-year-old mother was particularly angry because the school turned her daughter out of the class and made her miss her lessons.

She even went on to share that she'd rather have her daughter safe at home than in a school where she's made to stand facing the wall, doing nothing. Moreover, she also failed to comprehend how the policy could change all of a sudden.

The Prescot School believes that having the new guidelines in place will make the students feel calmer and also prevent any valuable items from being lost.  

Geraldine said that her daughter has been through a lot, and wearing the earrings makes her feel grounded and safe. The school should prioritize their students' safety and comfort level above all else instead of putting them in a tough spot, she suggested.

The Prescot School's rigid policy has raised questions from many parents, who suggest the institute sort out its priorities. Much like India's mother, the parents have deemed the school's behavior as highly unprofessional. India also shared her horrible experience: 

"They took me to the removal room and told me to sit down, and they read me the removal room rules."

The decision to ban students from wearing any and all jewelry items was taken quite recently by the Prescot School. Earlier, they allowed the student body to wear small studs.

In their defense, the Prescot School shared that their new policy comes in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. They also added that they had already communicated their revised standards and expectations to the parents and students before the summer break.
